The basketball team is enjoying a day off


With the exception of a one-hour meeting to go over schemes, the Wildcats have Friday off to do whatever they please. It has been a long and tiring run since the team started practicing again on Christmas night, so Coach Cal is giving his players a day of rest today. They have gone nine straight days, practicing twice most days, with an evening meal and meetings to end the night.

“They deserve a day off. I’m proud of the progress,” Coach Cal tweeted Friday morning. “They’re all learning to deal with the grind of becoming a better team and a better player.”

Practice picks back up Saturday for a few more days before Wednesday night’s game against Mississippi State to open up conference play. This is the longest stretch of the season between games, and it’s an important one. Big Blue Nation can’t wait to see how the players come out of Camp Cal.

    Read the headline as “an day off.” I need a nap too.

    Them boys need to be in the gym shooting free throws rather than loafing around all day! 🙂

    I hope this guy ^^^ is joking. I was about to say “illogical fans complain about not shooting free throws in 3, 2, 1…” . I love UK, but some of the fans are annoying and clueless.

      Notice the smiley – think it’s pretty safe to assume that he is lampooning some of the lunatic fringe of the fan base.

    Great that they earned a day off, I’m sure Camp Cal has been taxing. Champions would be putting in work themselves though, and the free throw stripe is a good place to start.

    They should all be locked inside the gym and made to shoot free throws all day…
